The new cable railway in Stoos is the steepest cable car in the world, with up to 110% gradient. It takes you up to the Bergdorf Stoos at around 1300 m above sea level. In only 3 1/2 minutes it will transport locals and tourists alike to the Stoos mountain and back into the valley. The technical highlight: the cabins remain always horizontally despite the extreme gradient. An original cabin of the new cable railway can already be viewed and experienced in the Swiss Transport Museum in Lucerne.
Radiate Engineering has been contracted by CWA Constructions SA / Corp. in order to develop a test report of the Stoos cable railway according to the standard EN 13796-1.
We are looking forward to the new railway and the expected launch in December 2017!
